My Students

I teach in an inner-city public school which houses a program for Autistic Impaired Learners. We have a diverse population of students with various Autism Spectrum Disorders.

My classroom consists of eighteen children, two of whom are on the Autism Spectrum.

All my students are the kindest and hardworking students you will ever meet. They are so genuinely thoughtful and selfless. Watching how all students accept one another for their unique and beautiful differences is truly amazing. I am the luckiest teacher on the planet!

My Project

My students love to read and write! In second grade it is critical to give as many opportunities as we can to promote literacy and geography skills in the classroom. It helps the children to gain a lifelong love for learning. By having these books available at all times for the students at their desks, it is easier for them to have access to work in them. Our students love to have their own books to write in and take home. These reading/writing, and map skills books are perfect for the students to keep at their own desk and use for themselves. They can be used in whole group lessons, or independently when their other work is complete. The Map skills books are excellent to learn about the continents and oceans of the world, part of our second grade curriculum. The reading/writing Word books are perfect to practice vocabulary and writing full complete sentences.
